Our most useful exercise once you have control of the dog

It's boring - and it might appear pointless to the novice, but walking backwards with the dog bringing the sheep up to you is the single most important exercise you can do once your dog has basic control of the sheep.

It improves pace, working distance, the stop, sheep control, and much more.

As well as clearly demonstrating how to get a strong dog to bring the sheep up quietly - this tutorial provides a valuable tip on how to read your sheep.

Thumbnail image for the sheep and cattle dog training tutorial: Calm But Firm

It's so important to appear calm, even when you're not

A dog which is aggressive with the sheep, but runs away as soon as the trainer attempts to correct it, is among the most difficult dogs to train.

Audrey not only fits this description perfectly, but just for good measure, refuses to go "Away" around the sheep too.

The Calm but Firm tutorial will show you how to cope with these difficult dogs. Featuring footage from actual training sessions.
